A day In Chicago: One of America's largest cities

Chicago is known for many different things: the beautiful skyline, architecture, museums, Navy Pier, the Willis Tower and John Hancock Building, theater, zoos, sports, restaurants and nightlife. On a recent trip to the Windy City, Alex found it was possible to experience the city in a way that can be lost in the hustle and bustle of trying to take in all the city has to offer in the matter of a few days. Walking along the city streets, it is possible to view the city in a different, even simpler way. From watching boats transporting people along the Chicago River to noticing the famous Chicago EL from a different perspective, or from finding Chicago’s own example of the Flatiron building to seeing stunning examples of architecture like the top of the Harold Washington Library, even finding a calming fountain for rest and rejuvenation beside the famous Art institute and just steps away from the often hectic Michigan Avenue, Alex saw many different things this great American city has to offer. This city is alive, active, hectic, and tourists often miss the subtleties that reminded Alex that it takes more than just attractions to make a city. So if you visit Chicago, make a conscious effort to view, and really see things you normally wouldn’t. Look at the people, their movement and pace, their eyes, their actions. Look at the beauty all around as you move from place to place. Find moments of grandeur, as well as peace and serenity among the millions of people, and don’t settle for the typical experience.
